Child’s Play

Available to buy on the Virgin Media Store. Rent on Virgin Movies from Monday 21 October

Chucky is back, and he’s been rebooted for the smartphone generation! This new twist on the 1988 classic is as much a comment on consumerism and our reliance on technology as it is a straight-up horror, but don’t worry, there are still scares aplenty. Aubrey Plaza (Parks And Recreation) stars as single mum Karen, whose young son isn’t so keen on his new toy...

 

Brightburn

Available to buy on the Virgin Media Store. Rent on Virgin Movies from Monday 21 October

James Gunn – the man behind the Guardians Of The Galaxy franchise – has only gone and produced the anti-superhero movie. Just like in Superman’s origin story, a couple struggling to conceive (Elizabeth Banks and David Denman) are blessed with a baby who literally falls from the heavens. However, it quickly becomes clear this little boy is anything but a blessing...

 

Supernatural

Seasons 1-13 available to buy on the Virgin Media Store from Monday 28 October

It’s the longest-running live-action fantasy series in history, so if you’re a fan of supernatural shows and haven’t seen Supernatural, well, what have you been waiting for? This 13-season epic stars Jared Padalecki (Gilmore Girls) and Jensen Ackles (Smallville) as two brothers who hunt monsters, demons and other supernatural beings.

 

Midsommar

Available to buy on the Virgin Media Store from Monday 28 October. Rent on Virgin Movies from Monday 28 October

From the writer/director of Hereditary, and with a host of five-star reviews and an 83% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Midsommar is one of the films of the year. Florence Pugh (Lady Macbeth) stars as troubled Dani, who is stuck in a deteriorating relationship that feels like it might be saved when she and her boyfriend arrive at the secret Midsommar festival in Sweden. What comes next is a cacophony of paranoia and trippiness that will unsettle and terrify.

 

Good Omens

Good Omens starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant

Available to buy on the Virgin Media Store from Monday 28 October

A Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman adaptation with a sparkling cast that includes Michael Sheen, David Tennant, Frances McDormand and Jon Hamm. This tells the story of an angel and a demon who become friends on Earth and set about trying to prevent the coming of the Antichrist, and the inevitable Armageddon to follow. Uh... good luck!

 

Annabelle Comes Home

Available to buy on the Virgin Media Store from Saturday 2 November. Rent on Virgin Movies from Monday 4 November

There are a lot of movies about creepy murderous dolls – and we mean a lot – but are any of those dolls quite as creepy or quite as murderous as Annabelle? She’s back here for the sixth instalment of the Conjuring universe, proving horror fans just cannot get enough.

 

Don’t run away just yet!

There’s even more horror at your fingertips with the Virgin Media Store’s Halloween collections! A horde of spooky favourites are available to buy from just £4.99, from classics including The Exorcist and A Nightmare On Elm Street to modern smashes like A Quiet Place, plus many more!
